So, my first iPhone, the original iPhone 2G that i once loved so much got broken... few years ago... About a week ago I decided to go out and buy a soldering iron and fix it. obviously, i succeeded. BUT there was one little(HUGE) problem: I totally forgot the passcode i've set on it. Like the last dumbpumkin-head I decided to use up all my tries, and now it's disabled and asks for iTunes. I'm sure the info is still there, but I know if i connect to iTunes and do what it wants me to do I will sure enough lose all my data (most importantly-pictures). I heard that the Ubuntu distr. 12.04 can mount it no matter what and i would be able to get my pictures, but NO, dammit. nothing, same message as Windows "this iPhone is locked.. blahblahblah..." If anyone can help, i will be very very thankful ,because no one, NO ONE AT ALL has been able to help me, and i've asked a lot of people about my problem. So, my dear Mac-ers, with that being said, I send this and pray to god someone knowledgeable enough will get in touch with me.
